Do you read me? - Radio check for clinical chemists.
1Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics AB, Upplands Väsby, Sweden
The clinical utility of our expanding knowledge and our increasing array of biochemical tests will not be fulfilled without a close communication between laboratory medicine and clinical practice. Although new methods of distributing information and results are being developed continuously the basic principles of communication will be increasingly essential. The presentation will not only discuss aspects such as nautical radiotelephony and story-telling , but also present experiences relating to problem-based discussions, communication aims and follow up. It will highlight the fact that clinicians don’t care about methodology, never think in Excel and fall asleep to PowerPoint (especially if it’s got graphs in them!).
